War with the Newts by Karel Čapek

About the Book

Utopia can be tricky, and the author makes it a point to demonstrate that the nature of our desire is a monster no matter our intention. Karel delivers messages in serious satire using mankind’s knowledge and pride as foundation toward its own overthrow. Man’s reign over the animal kingdom is terrorized by giant newts much more intelligent than mans ego let them realize. This novel is almost anthropological because of multifaceted instances of satirized culture. All elements of society are darkened by spellbound humor as humanity falls into disaster. The ugliest side of societal achievement crashes like waves on shores we used to surf.
